TPG2022 Chapter X paragraph 10.182

The capital support method may be suitable where the difference between the guarantor’s and borrower’s risk profiles could be addressed by introducing more capital to the borrower’s balance sheet. It would be first necessary to determine the credit rating for the borrower without the guarantee (but with implicit support) and then to identify the amount of additional notional capital required to bring the borrower up to the credit rating of the guarantor. The guarantee could then be priced based on an expected return on this amount of capital to the extent that the expected return so used appropriately reflects only the results or consequences of the provision of the guarantee rather than the overall activities of the guarantor- enterprise.
